Are any of you going to Sturgis. If so, where are you staying? My girlfriend and I are going, but we are not sure where we are going to camp. I am just curious who else is going.

Me and two other friends are leaving Nebraska this coming Thursday. We'll be staying at the Buffalo Chip. Should be a good time.

Do you know how much it costs to stay at the buffalo chip? I know glencoe is $125 per person but I haven't found out how much buffalo chip is.

I'm pretty sure it's about $28-$32 per person, per night, to get in there. That basically covers your camping for the day plus whatever concert and other events they are having there that particular night. Weather you just want to get in for just the concert, just get in to camp, or to do both, it's the one flat fee. I hope that makes sense.

They do have their own website at www.buffalochip.com if you want to try to find more info there.

That's cool that you can pay per night. At glencoe it is just a flat fee for 15 days, no matter how long you stay there.

I don't have much desire to go. I've been to Laconia a bunch of times, beiing from NH. It was just an hour drive away.
But I never did Daytona or Sturgis. Too big of a crowd, and it's become too commercial.
The absolute BEST biker bash I ever went to was in Clarksville, TN (Ft. Campbell area). It was fairly small (only 75 kegs of beer down in 48 hours) but was a blast. Good food, good bands, I got second in the show for my chopper. No fights. Cops were cool.
I prefer smaller rallies.Although Laconia IS a blast too. Wier's Beach area is gorgeous to ride around in. There is a bridge with a sharp peak off the main drag and you can punch up a wheelie on it even on an FLH. Of course it ends right on the main street, so you're brakes better be in good shape or you're freaking dead.

I stayed at Lamphere last year when I went. 36 bucks for three nights. It's not a big campground and doesn't have much going on, but we were only there to sleep anyway. It was right next to Glencoe.

If you want to be able to get some sleep, then go for a smaller campsite like Lamphere. If you want to constantly be in the middle of something, then go to Buffalo Chip or Glencoe.

Here's a link to lodging:

Have a good time. I enjoyed it last year.
